    In 1940’s Indiana, nine-year-old Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) dreams of his ideal Christmas gift: a genuine Red Ryder 200-shot Carbine Action Air Rifle.

He also endures all kinds of childhood calamities from snowsuit paralysis to the yellow-eyed Scotty Farkus affair to the dreaded tongue-on-a-frozen-flagpole gambit. We triple-dog-dare you to unwrap a more welcome Yuletide classic!

  • I will try to be normal,” 12-year-old Ace Ventura Jr. promises. That’s cool, except what’s normal for him is finding missing mutts, kidnapped kitties or gone gators and creating hilarious chaos every step of the way.

    Like father, like son, it’s in his nature to be a pet defective – detective! And when a zoo’s baby panda is stolen and Ace’s mum is Suspect #1, our young hero sets out to clear the family name. It’s a new generation of family fun and goof-brained comedy panda-monium as Ace Ventura Jr. (Josh Flitter of Nancy Drew and License to Wed) teams with adventurous girl-next-door Laura (Emma Lockhart) and nerdish gizmo-wiz A-Plus (Austin Rogers) to chase down leads and laughs. Ready for fun? Allriiiightythen. Ace – Ace Jr. – is on the case!

  • Africa’s the place and Ace is on the case, setting out to rescue an animal he loathes – a bat!

  • Cary Grant and a stellar cast romp through this classic farce based on Joseph Kesselring’s 1941 Broadway hit and breezily directed by Frank Capra. 

    Frazzled drama critic Mortimer Brewster (Grant) has two aunts (Josephine Hull and Jean Adair) who ply lonely geezers with poisoned libations, one sociopathic brother (Raymond Massey) who looks like Boris Karloff, one bonkers brother (John Alexander) who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, one impatient new bride (Priscilla Lane) - and only one night to make it turn out all right. In this circus’ centre ring is Grant, twisting his face into a clown’s gallery of flabbergasted reactions and transforming his natural athletic grace into a rubber-legged comic ballet. You’ll die laughing.
